Firm Plans Storage Services Empire

A holding company based in Virginia is building a small empire of domestic colocation and managed service facilities featuring storage.

Managed Data Holdings (MDH), a three-man firm started in June 2007, made its second acquisition in seven months this week with the purchase of Data393, a Denver-based colocation facility with 30,000 square feet of space, over 500 customers, and a focus on dedicated Internet access.

The buy follows MDH's purchase of InteleNet, another data center colocation company based in Irvine, Calif. InteleNet features about 30,000 square feet more facilities and supports over 400 customers, MDH claims. Its specialty is managed services.

About 85 employees work for either Data393 or InteleNet.

Terms of both the Data393 and InteleNet purchases weren't disclosed, but MDH acknowledges filing for antitrust clearance from the U.S. Department of Justice in October 2007 prior to the purchase of InteleNet. That kind of scrutiny isn't required unless a purchase is over $55 million.
